okay firstly I'd like to apologise in case there is already a thread like this out there
Can someone please tell me the difference between Biology, Biochemistry and Biomedical degrees?
Also can graduates of these be considered somewhat equally for the same job or is the difference in the degree just too large?
Bio - what now? Watch

Biology - plants, animals, bacteria, ecology, human biology, evolution, genetics - a bit of everything
Biochemistry - more chemistry involved (obviously...) but more on chemical reaction pathways and metabolism, I guess? More about the chemical structure of cells as opposed to just the cells, I think.
Biomed - somewhere in between. Pretty much entirely human biology, but still encompassing neurology, genetics, physiology, etc etc. so not a specialism like just doing Anatomy.
